With only subtle effects use but all-the-more-carefully crafted sounds, Theodor Zox takes us on a different kind of journey into Scandinavia as an architectural utopia constructed out of beautiful synth lines and high-frequency ornament. Very calm, but swinging and enviably optimistic.
The artist about his work:
"Being a very visual person, as well as having synasthetic experiences through my entire life, I perceive sound as form and colour. For me every sound is equally important so therefore every sound in a piece of music is sculpted and moulded to form its own original characteristics of tone and texture, I often use the terms form and plasticity in evaluation of my work.No samples or presets are used, all sounds are synthesized and designed from scratch."
"The temp.light EP was formed as an escape from my usual deep dub techno, it's deliberately produced very dry and light. I see it as a breath of fresh air and a beginning of a new direction for my future work. "
It should come as no surprise then, that Theodor submitted his own graphics for this release.

This is very *Avanced* Minimal House ...
Theodor Zox is another artist that is introduced to the Netlabel thing by Textone. And the Netlabel Scene can be indeed happy to have Theodor Zox releasing three very fine minimal cuts with this EP. Zox' sound can be described as quirky and therefore very funky, but not too dry - indeed very shifting, multidimensional, well-produced and with a very modern aesthetical approach, that shows the right direction for where Minimalhouse could go in the future. Zox proved that he will be a pioneer.
